New Bridge, Newcastle Upon Tyne

Not wishing to be accused of having a southern bias, we have scoured the northern parts of the UK to find some landmarks. Sadly the photography stops just south of Edinburgh so we cannot show you that beautiful city, but we did find this spanking new bridge over the Tyne river in Newcastle. It is so new we cannot find it's name on the map.

Look how it gleams pearly white, just goes to show its not all grim oop narth!

That would be the Queen Elizabeth Bridge (one of many shiny bridges over the Tyne) which carries the Metro system over the Tyne. We've got trains and everything. ;)

Thank you.

Just for the record, I used to live in Belford, Northumbria where we considered the inhabitants of Newcastle as "soft southerners"!

That'll be the rural proclivity for soft headedness. ;)

And if you lived in such a beautiful part of the country with all it's natural and man made landmarks then I'm even more surprised there aren't more locations from 'up our way'!

Northumbrian castles, Roman Wall, Kielder, Cragside - there's lots. I'll have to submit some. ;)

How about the home of God?
St. James Park, that is.

I sent you two days ago and have had no reply and they haven't been listed on here.

Not that much anticipation then. Pah! ;)
